  1. Exactly, you can just undervolt DDR3 and you have DDR3L.. Well there may be some weird mini ITX board that use SODIMM DDR3L or some other small form factor..
  2. Yes DDR3L SODIMM's save a couple watts which helps you get 15min extra battery life on your laptop.. The whole reason that Skylake used DDR3L and not regular DDR3 was that the voltage was too high for DDR3 and Intel thought it could fry the CPU and IMC in the long run. Also I am not buying any DDR4 anytime soon.. No point for me with my current setups..
  3. Actually DDR3 should be faster by a bit at the same speeds and timings due to the design of DDR4. This has always been true since going from DDR to DDR2, and DDR2 to DDR3 (and maybe even before like FPM to EDO and SDR to DDR..)
  4. I am well aware I was just curious. The first odd ram setup I ever had was using a RAM Tree that allowed me to used 4 30Pin SIMMS in one 72 Pinn SIMM slot. It actually did effect performance due to the fact that the ram was rated at a higher NS (Nano Second) rating. So another kinda weird thing is could they make a DDR3(L) Z370 board or did Intel actually change the IMC on Coffee Lake from Kaby Lake and Skylake? The info doesn't seem to be out in the public..
  5. But that is the whole novelty of it. Kinda like 28 core Xeon's, Xeon Phi's, Arm development boards, Ln2 cooling. Sometimes the rarer something is the more interesting it can be even if the results are easy to predict (such as using DDR4 at the same speeds and timings as DDR3(L). Kinda like Linus's HOLY $hit episodes..
  6. Yes I know this but I am just wondering if anyone actually runs such a system in real life.
  7. So there are Z170 boards that used DDR3 so I was wondering if anyone has run Kaby Lake on them. I would like to see a comparison between DDR3 and DDR4. An example of such a board is https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z170-HD3-DDR3-rev-10#ov
  8. Yes check Intel's ARK as currently there is no real logical system to Intel Laptop CPU naming.
  9. You would need to enable file sharing and then share the folder you want to share (old school way). https://www.teamknowhow.com/kit-guide/computing/laptops/dell/inspiron-13-5000/how-to-set-up-file-sharing-on-windows-10 Another way is using Homegroups. https://www.windowscentral.com/how-setup-and-manage-windows-10-homegroup-local-network With passwords both ways are secure.
  10. If both computers are hooked up to the same WIFI LAN then it should work just fine over WIFI. Ethernet might be faster but WIFI is way more convenient. Also you should not have to take the WIFI card out to use the Ethernet port as you can use both at the same time.
  11. For instance Vega 64 main GPUhas a 12 Phase VRM but the controller only supports 6 phases, the doubler takes one of the phases signals and splits it every other one between two VRMs. (kinda like AFR SLI in a way). This lessens the load on each VRM by roughly 50%. Well this is a basic understanding of it.. This guy explains it around starting around 8min 20sec to 10min in the video.
  12. Dude that PSU is old AF (12+ years). Get a new one and don't try and cheap out. Yes you can use an adapter to get around it but it is probably not worth it.. Electrical stuff breaks down and gets weaker over time.
  13. It is kinda a weird deal cause Kabylake was never on intel's old roadmaps. Z170 and Z270 were supposed to be Sky Lake(SKL) 14nm then Cannon Lake 10nm (CNL) compatible. Intel has had major issues with 10nm and a few years ago started to realize they were gonna have some issues right around the time they were validating their second 14nm mainstream cpu Skylake (SKL). This is when Kabylake(KBL) 14+nm was added to roadmaps, it's a basically just a Skylake Refresh with slightly updated GPU and video on a more mature 14+nm, so not much different from the Haswell to Devil's Canyon deal.. Time went on and Intel was having so many issues with 10nm that they added Coffee Lake (CFL). Coffee Lake is Kabylake Refresh with 2 cores tacked on made on a more mature and slightly tweaked 14++nm (they changed the Poly Pitch).. In AMD world this was like going from Deneb to Thuban cores on 45nm.. Anyways in my mind people did get royally screwed by Intel this time around as Intel has in the last 10 years has made a type of cpu core architecture then shrunk it and had it compatible with the same socket and chipsets (ie 32nm Sandy Bridge to 22nm Ivy Bridge on Z67 and Z77) . They had better support Cannon Lake on Z370.
  14. Wondering if how much cooling changes from sea level to say 10,000Ft.
